Yesterday I tried Intermittent Fasting again. I’ve done it in the past but usually did regular keto food (half a pound of melted cheese and some bacon). With Keto Chow being a liquid, it complicates things. My approach was to skip breakfast, skip lunch and then drink 1 (Chocolate fudge) around 3 pm, another (chocolate peanut butter) while driving home around 4:30. My final one I drank around 7 PM, I had meant to drink it around 5-5:30 but stuff got busy. Overall I consider it a success. I wasn’t overly hungry throughout the day and I was pleasantly full once I started eating without feeling crappy. Going to do it again today, this time I brought my ketone blood test strips so I can check my ketone levels a couple times. I’m curious how high they will get when I’m at 19 hours fasting. Anyway, check out http://burnfatnotsugar.com/intermittent-fasting.html for more info on fasting, including the fun myths section where he tackles “starvation mode”, frequent small meals, breakfast being the most important meal of the day, and more.
- at 12:19 my blood ketones were at 0.7 mmol/L
- at 15:18 my blood ketones were at 1.3 mmol/L – so that’s roughly 17 hours since I last consumed any calories. Not bad at all.
